NBA Rookie Stock Watch: Ranking Challengers to Michael Carter-Williams' Throne

The Philadelphia 76ers' early run couldn't go on forever, but it's starting to look like rookie Michael Carter-Williams' game is built to last.

The man who shot up the rookie rankings last week put in another solid seven days of work that should go a long way toward solidifying his hold on the top spot here. A few other first-year studs did their best to keep pace, and a couple of them—Steven Adams and Kelly Olynyk come to mind—even helped their teams notch winning records.

Elsewhere in this week's rookie rankings, one point guard's debut on the list meant another's exclusion, while a certain Detroit Pistons sniper is in danger of slipping out of the top 10 for the first time.

There's still plenty of fluidity in the early going of the 2013-14 season, but a few top rookies are starting to separate themselves from the pack.
